Very nice. I was looking at one myself but after doing some reading I'm trying to find a model 10 in. 300 win mag with the leo bull barrel . From what I have been told don't try to make it group any less than 400 yards. It groups best at around 550+ . So if ur shooting 100-200 yard groups and their not great don't worry about it remember its a long distance rifle and it just takes longer for that big ass bullet to stabilize

Very nice Jester. Please give us a range report when you get to it.

I entered a drawing for one at the local range a while back, but of course I didn't win it.

I took it to the rang after work this evening. I loaded bunch of different 223 and 308 rounds and wanted to see what worked best.
I took the 338 along because I just had to play with the new toy. It was eating me up. I didn't even have a scope so I just pulled off one shot down range.
The trigger is stupid light and the kick really isn't too bad. About that of or maybe just stitch above the 308. It's loud enough to make anyone around pee their pants and the muzzle break throws enough wind back that it blew a full bottle of diet coke off the bench.
I didn't waist any more than one shot but I'm on the hunt for a good scope and ordered 200 once fireds today.

The winchester Model 70 has been pressed into service as a sniper rifle many times. I can hit just as well with a model 70 at 30 yards as well as 350 yards. I have made shots with a model 70 at a measured quarter mile with a 70 something tasco scope. I don't buy into the crap that a rifle that won't shoot well at 200 yards will hit at 600 yards. The bullet flies straight right out of the barrel. It might have a higher trajectory than you figured but the bullet is stable until it quits spinning.
